A wonderful email accompanying the above email received today from…
Join us on Friday to learn about, celebrate and drink from the breweries of our town.
Here’s the story:
1921 Lion Brewery rolls out its last barrel
2006 Totnes has no local breweries
2007 Bridgetown Brewery opens at the Albert Inn
2013 New Lion Brewery brews its first batch
2014 The Totnes Brewing Company pulls its first pint
2015 Totnes boasts three local breweries
Here’s the question:
Is this a hip, hop revival and passing fad, or a long-term shift in our local economic destiny? That’s what we’ll be asking on our ‘Totnes Tripple Tipple’ tour, as we visit all three of Totnes’ breweries and meet the entrepreneurs and brewers behind them.
Here’s the plan:
We’ll crack open the strong entrepreneurial spirit of our special little town as we go, and see how it is maturing nicely to keep the local food and drink economy partying for years to come.
Join us to learn about: REconomy Centre, building a strong local economy with a focus on food and drink enterprise, Totnes Brewing Company, ATMOS Totnes, including plans for a community brewery and food entrepreneurs hub, New Lion Brewery and the Albert Inn, home of Bridgetown Brewery.
